What is Worship?

What worship is to others, is it is an ongoing process in our faith

journeys. It isn't something we arrive at. It is a reflection of who we

are. To worship is to love and adore something through all our actions and

everything. So if we are worshipping God, it should be seen outside the

four walls we meet in on Sunday AM. AGREED....



I like the following illustration from the Unquenchable Worshipper by Matt

Redman. pg. 74



"The year is 1744. Hymn writer Charles Wesley is in Leeds, England, holding

a prayer meeting in an upstairs room. Suddenly there is a creak in the

floorboards, followed by a massive crack, and the whole floor collapses.

All 100 people crashed right through the ceiling into the room below. The

place is in chaos - some are screaming, some are crying, some just sit in

shock. But as the dust settles, Wesley, wounded and lying in a heap, cries

out, "Fear not! The Lord is with us, our lives are all safe." And then he

breaks out into the doxology: "Praise God from whom all blessings flow." -

perhaps a bizarre choice of a song, considering what just happened!"



Here's the point, I would love to be like that worshipper in the midst of

crisis to respond with unstoppable praise, I just know many of those

moments I fail our Lord.
